Tech Giant Apple tried to Unveil its new, Very Much Expected iPhone this year. But According to Report its release may be delayed. Following a report earlier this week claiming that the launch of Apple’s next-generation iPhone may be pushed to October or November, another report today adds more weight to a possible delay for the device versus the usual early to mid September launch dates of previous generations.
Drexel Hamilton SENIOR EQUITY RESEARCH ANALYST Brian White White (via CNBC), claims that Apple’s expected high-end 5.8-inch model in the new iPhone 8 could be delayed beyond September due to difficulties related to the 3D sensing technology rumored to debut on the device:
“First off, our smartphone contact believes the 3D sensing technology and OLED displays will only be offered with the 5.8-inch iPhone 8,” White said in a note emailed to CNBC. “However, our contact strongly believes the 5.8-inch iPhone will be delayed by several weeks due to challenges around the 3D sensing technology but still in time for the December holidays.”
The 3D camera is expected to be one of the major new features of the new smartphone. The 3D camera would also give the new iPhone better capabilities to handle facial recognition that won’t be fooled by a photo, something we saw on Samsung’s new Galaxy S8.
Instinctively, we know that Apple will eventually get rid of all ports, but maybe we’re not there just yet.
